Hi,
How are you? Enterococcus faecalis is a gram-positive bacteria  and is most often found in the large intestine of humans. It is also responsible for urinary tract infections, bacterimia, endocarditis, meningitis, and can be found in wound infections along with many other bacteria and not necessarily due to sexual contact.  It  is also listed as one of the most common cause of nosocomial infections such as those occurring after surgery of the abdomen or a puncturing trauma, but can also be linked to the increased use of IV’s and catheters.  This can be managed with antibiotics also but it is important that you check with your doctor first for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
